“Growing Potential for Saturday Blizzard – Subzero Sunday”
* Second, much more significant snowfall late Friday night into Saturday. Unlike today’s wet, slushy (icy) snowfall, Saturday’s snow will be dry/powdery/fluffy – quick to accumulate, prone to blowing and drifting by afternoon and evening, especially outside the metro area. Potential for over 12″ close to home.
* Dangerously cold weather arrives over the weekend – wind chills dip into the -20 to -35 range by Saturday night and Sunday. Highs will not climb above zero across much of Minnesota Sunday and Monday, including the metro area.
This is the kind of headline/forecast that pisses me off, and will make squeezing in a 13 mile (w/ 8 at MP) run difficult this weekend. Training for a marathon in the Minnesota winter is going to be challenging for sure!
